There is a very strong sense of state pride in NJ in everything from jersey tomatoes to Bruce Springsteen. If they can tap into those feelings, then they are on the right track.
In my opinion, Harbaugh had to come in as coach and treat it like a program that has never had a history of winning. Michigan has to have publicity stunts and make news to get into the conversation for the kids that they are recruiting. These kids don't remember when Michigan was consistently good. My kids are in school at OSU and have no memory of Michigan being a threat to OSU at all.
Best was 1985 vs Iowa and Chuck Long. Spielman and Pepper Johnson were awesome.
Worst was in 2011 vs Michigan State at home in a 10 to 7 loss. No offense the entire game until the end when Bauserman (yes Joe Bauserman) threw a TD pass.
Going 2 and 1 in the final 3 would put them at 12 and 6 in the regular Big 10 season and they should at least be in the conversation for the bubble.
It doesn't matter who the Cavs have as a coach. If the ball doesn't move and everyone just stands and watches Lebron dribble down the shot clock, they won't ever have a consistent enough offense to win it all.
I would say LSU. Always go with the home team.
Just a matter of time
Almost all of my favorites have been mentioned but I didn't see Dazed & Confused. Can't not watch it when I surf on to it.
How did that work out for the #1 seed last year?
Still waiting to see how Cinci responds to injuries. They have been one of the healthiest teams this year. In the NFL, injuries are bound to come up at some point.
The Love Boat was awesome. Thought of it recently when that big hurricane was threatening Puerto Vallarta.
Lurk every day. Upvote quite a bit. Comment rarely.
There is no such thing as a bad Dazed & Confused reference. Awesome.
I have watched a much improved UM team march down the field on almost every drive for 3 out of 4 games. And they did it against better teams than we have played.
So you are feeling like you would rather take TTUN's situation right now rather that what we have going with our offense? Seriously?
Always an upvote for an Old School reference.
I agree. I wonder if they are saving this wrinkle for later. It just seems that he would be a natural with his ability to make someone miss.
As long as we keep winning by at least one point, style won't matter and we will remain in the top 4 when the playoffs are announced at the end. The rankings this early in the season do not matter, but it gets especially hard to do when teams get "upset" early on. Upsets early in the season may not look so great later in the year.
Archie Griffin ====== Class!
I would rather see a team after week 2 with things to work on and peaking at the end of the season than the other way around.
It looks like they figured out the secret to winning big games.
Awesome result. Congrats to Coach Herman.
It seems to me that I see a trend among all of our skill players (not just Cardale and JT) that they are trying to make every play into a big play. The battle for playing time gets these guys wanting to make every play into a touchdown and it seems that everyone who handles the ball is pressing a little bit. In any sport, guys play better when they play with a relaxed and confident attitude.
Now I don't think that competition is bad, but this is just a by-product of the competition in the early stages.
